This is a excerpt from the Just Boobs Project book. These are real women, their thoughts and feelings, their breasts.
I tried on a dress at a store that fit perfectly… except on top. I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if clothes automatically looked good?” I had recently lost weight and my breast size was down. They weren’t even a full A. I remember having C’s when I was breastfeeding and I loved it. I had the money and I had the support from friends and family. I just thought it would be really awesome to have boobs again. So, I did my research and found out who was the best surgeon in town.
At the consultation the surgeon noted how my breasts were two different sizes and how the surgery would definitely help my appearance. I went back home to think about it. I remember wishing I could just love my body the way it was. I realized by going through with the surgery, I would be affirming that natural, small, uneven breasts aren’t good enough. Somehow, looking at my daughter always helps me make better choices. How will she feel about herself when her breasts grow in? I decided to be an example of natural beauty to younger women by not having the procedure.
Why not just wear a padded bra for those days when I want C’s? The end result is just as effective as surgery, but without the pain. Besides, fake breasts look and feel fake.
